"If at first you don't succeed, call an air strike."
ASTRO got to experience much of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 phenomenon first hand as we partnered with Activision for their first ever CODXP event in sunny Southern California as the official Communications Partner for the weekend. With over six thousand in attendance, gamers got to play all the multiplayer modes of this year’s title, and several tournaments were held with a total of $1,000,000 given out.
As the official Communication Partner, our gear was used in all of the MW3 free-play stations, competitive tournament stations, and on the main stage. The comfort of the ear cups on the A40s and A30s allowed for hours of game play. Our MixAmp Pro was connected at each station and used to provide the best quality voice chat in any tournament environment and the highest quality sound for the true competitive gamer.
As the choice of many Major League Gaming pro-gamers and teams, our gear has been put to the test in the tournament environment. With Modern Warfare 3, Battlefield 3, or any other military shooter, the ability to get clear communication paired with 5.1 Dolby Digital surround sound makes for an immersive environment, and clear directional cues to take on the competition.
If you don’t yet own anything ASTRO, we have a little incentive for you to purchase our gear over the Black Friday to Cyber Monday weekend. For each of the four days, if you make a purchase on our site, you will be entered to win a MW3 Xbox 360 console bundle, which comes with the MW3 branded Xbox 360, two MW3 branded controllers, and a copy of the standard edition of MW3. We also have a grand prize for this contest, which we’ll reveal at this month’s MLG Providence Finals. If you’re a fan of competitive gaming, you won’t want to miss out on what it is!
See you out on the battlegrounds!
